Happy Mother’s Day!
To all the Mothers out there, I hope you have had a fabulous day. I know our “job” is one of the most thankless in the world, but we are what makes the world go round! To my mommy, I love you!!!
Some quick outfit recaps, as I continue on my “dress a day in May” journey. I think at this point I am going for a different dress a day, but that will depend on our weather, as we have been having brutal winds where I live. Which limits my dress selection, as I personally prefer to avoid flashing people.
Friday, I did end up changing to go to the tea with my 2nd grader. What I wore:
Dress: David’s Bridal ($4 @ Goodwill)
Brooch: Vintage, off eBay (was around $3-$4)
Shoes: Kate Spade (off Fifth outlet, $67 on sale)
I didn’t have a handbag, I shoved my coin purse & keys in my pockets! (Yes, this dress has pockets!!!)
Yesterday we had to pop out and run some errands, and I got creative with a dress that is a little too low cut now that I have a teenage boy (and he had a friend over as well!!), adding in a black lace tank top to “raise” the neckline. I figure I should step lightly when around the high school boys, especially as I’ve been tagged by hall monitors AS a student “out of dress code”. (Very flattering, let me tell you!) my oldest is not my biological child, and I’m not technically old enough for him to be “mine”, but he is MINE. (Fierce momma bear moment!!!). A little useless information for y’all.
My outfit(which survived the wind!)
Cardigan: Kate Spade (off eBay, under $50)
Dress: Nanette Lepore (also off eBay, don’t remember the price, it’s been 3+ years)
Brooch: unsure (I think I bought it in a lot of Jewlery? But I don’t really remember)
Shoes: Light Siam Strassed Jimmy Choo flats (diy)
And for today, again a “wind-proof” dress.
Cardigan: Banana Republic Outlet (holiday 2013, under $15)
Dress: Kate Spade Jillian (my husband bought this for Valentine’s Day 2013, off a surprise sale)
Shoes: Montana Strass Christian Louboutin heels (diy. Heels were $60 off eBay, and I Strassed them myself)
On another note, my daughter has been taking notes! She’s been wearing pretty dresses AND being aware of the howling winds we have been having. I’m loving that she is growing into her own, and choosing to dress somewhat modestly, as the 9-10 year olds around her do not. Such a blessing she is! Now if I can get my boys to realize a CLEAN shirt is important? I will have won the war. (Said VERY tongue in cheek. I’m laughing at my silliness!)
Happy Mother’s Day y’all!
Until next time,
